Overview of the AGPT program

Hospital training

Hospital training

To be eligible to start general practice terms, registrars must have completed a minimum amount of training time in mandatory rotations – medicine, surgery, emergency medicine and paediatrics – in accredited Australian or New Zealand hospitals to give them a foundation for general practice training and an understanding of the integration of primary and secondary levels of care.

They also need to have completed a minimum of two years of appropriate hospital terms in accredited Australian or New Zealand hospitals. Some registrars they may apply for RPLE for hospital time previously completed and start their AGPT program in general practice or complete hospital time as part of the AGPT program and start their training in hospital.
